It includes a public outreach and educational program delivered annually throughout the Township with the help of Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS).

The Learning Farm is part of a series of elements designed to provide education on local food production to the Langley community, and in particular the students within the Langley School District. Students learn the basis of food crop production, the agriculture food system that brings food to their tables, and stewardship of the environmental space of which we are gradians.
